Return to Rescue Animals
Rex is currently undergoing observations for inflamed joints, so is currently unavailable for adoption.
Rex is an almost 2 year old, grey-patterned bearded dragon believed to be male. He was surrendered as his previous keeper felt they didn’t have the time to provide him with exercise outside of the vivarium.
He was kept in a 4ft wooden vivarium with a heat bulb, heat emitter (but no thermostat), UVB lighting and reptile carpet. He was fed dubia roaches and didn’t eat his salad.
Rex is a fussy eater and is missing the end of his tail. He also has swollen joints and a build up of mucous and tartar in his mouth so is currently under observation.
He is very handleable and friendly.
A great first beardie, but needs some TLC.
Rex will need a 4x2x2ft vivarium as a minimum, to allow space to exercise and move around. An overhead heat source should be fitted with a suitable thermostat to maintain a warm-side temperature of 38-43C. The cool side should sit below 30C and 18C at night. A high-level UV bulb should be provided both for a day/night cycle and for UV – 10-12% ideally. Rex should be fed fresh salad daily and staple insects two or three times a week (locusts, crickets, dubia roaches). These should be dusted with calcium and a calcium with Vitamin D3 powder alternatively.
